A New Yorker appeared to shove an NYPD officer and flee on foot after being stopped at gunpoint just blocks from Central Park in Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon, according to Fox News Digital video.
Three officers, guns drawn, approach a red Toyota sedan on E 59th St. between Park and Lexington Ave and wave the occupants out.
“Show me your hands! Get out of the car!” The officers can be heard screaming as they open the doors.
The driver initially appeared to comply and was led behind the vehicle.
When an officer tried to handcuff him, he spun, shoved the officer, and ran toward Lexington Ave on foot.
A man in the passenger seat got out of the car and was handcuffed while a woman was removed from the back seat.
The man who tried to escape was later arrested.
The NYPD said it is investigating the incident.
